This was Dave’s first song, he was a little bit flustered after a very long drive and then a very deep Jaeger Bomb. This is the first time (besides having my name called from stage) that I’ve been inside of one of my own videos. I’m somewhat proud of myself for my response under pressure since it was so late at night and I was maybe a little bit tipsy. He starts of with my absolute favorite Dondero song ‘Seen the Love’ then quickly goes into ‘Undertaker’ and then jumps into ‘Heart Breaks Deep’ so I just kept filming.
Dave sings Carolina Moon after a little more friendly banter and advice with another audience member. You’ve got to remember that Dondero is a genius artist and that gives him the right to be a little coo coo in my book. Rock on Dave!!
Once Dave got into the swing of things he just played beautiful music. This is “Living and the Dead’.
And his ‘real’ final song he plays ‘Job Boss’.
So, even though he ‘heckled’ me from stage I still respect the man, he’s a genius.
The Welfare liners have been very busy this summer. Here they are playing at the Melting Point on 7 19 11. They do a fantastic version of David Dondero’s ‘I’ve Seen the Love’.
The Welfare Liners sing about historic ‘Boulevard’ in Athens Georgia.
They’ve got a great song called ‘Terrapin Beer’ about…
Welfare Liners singing Bill Monroe’s ‘A Good Womans’ Love.
The next 4 videos (taken with my old camera) are from his performance at the Caledonia Lounge in Athens on October 26, 2010. He’s on stage with the Welfare Liners singing Charlie Pride’s ‘Kiss an Angel Good Morning’.
Dondero has made Neil Young’s ‘Don’t Cry No Tears’ his own.
‘Willin”, one of my favorite (but now overplayed) songs by Little Feat.
‘A Little Bit of Rain’ by Fred Neil.
